THE SCIENCE LESSONS - WHAT TO EXPECT

[Image: Fragments of words and images drawn by students]

 

During The Study Of Tears project the young people were asked questions about their experience of the science lessons.

Here are some of the questions and their answers:

 

Q. Did it help your understanding of tears to explore this subject in different ways?

A. “Yes, it helped to understand what was going on, so I could contribute”

A. “Yes, it got through to me and helped me understand more”

 

 

Q. What part of the science lessons did you most enjoy?

A. “I enjoyed the drawing and getting to know different things”

A. “I enjoyed meeting the research scientist, it helped me understand more about tears”

 

 

Q. What was it like to have a research scientist to ask questions and to discuss your thoughts?

A. “Fantastic!”

 

 

Q. What did you find most difficult?

A. “Some of the words”

 

 

 

 

________

WHAT NEXT?

In your class your science teacher will work with you to explore why we cry and why we have tears.

Your teacher may ask you to:

 

Play games
 

 

Try different tasks

 

 

 

 

Draw

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Think about emotions

 

 

 

Listen to music

 

 

 

 

 

Meet a scientist

 

Experiment

 

 

Respect

our

differences

 

 

 

Notes:

Science can contain long and difficult words and complicated ideas.

By exploring these words and ideas through drawing, experiments and tasks, it can help with our understanding of science. 

From ‘researching’ about the science of why we cry, we can then look at how this science can inspire our dance and video work.

 

Key Words List
